Shakespeare isn't just for English classes and acting students any more.
The Duluth Art Institute found that out when they opened a call for My Mind's Eye, works inspired by the artists' favorite character from Shakespeare. (UMD will be hosting an exhibit this month of Shakespeare's First Folio [printed in 1623] this month and there will be a number of events to mark the occasion. More information is here:)
No sooner had the DAI made the announcement than artists rushed to their studios, hoping to lay claim to their favorite characters before anyone else.
